    Off to Warwick tomorrow.

    Having complained about this on a number of occasions, I’m hoping they will have moved the hat-seller tent that is conveniently situated directly between the grandstand and the last hurdle/fence.

    The net effect of this is that the lower tier of the grandstand (i.e. about 80% of the grandstand crowd) cannot see the action from about the 2nd-last to over the last.

    When this was pointed out to the management, I was informed that "they do pay a lot of money to be here".  Unlike the punters of course (13/15 quid a throw).  I told them they had to decide whether they were running a racecourse or a milliners.  Blank stares all round.

    Anyway, I’ve got my boy scout’s knife and those guy-ropes don’t look that thick.  Windy tomorrow too.

    I’ll keep you posted.

    1) What planet are you on? No-one goes to the races to watch the actual racing. I’m surprised they still have grandstands facing the track.

    2) I don’t remember you being so anti-tent when it was occupied by a cheese seller. What have you got against Henrietta Knight-style furry hats? :)

    "Blessed are the cheesemakers" (Life of Brian).

    Anyway they moved him.  Set your video matey, it’s going to go off big style.  Just before the novice chase I reckon.

    It’s not like I’m all mouth….

    First ever visit to Warwick tomorrow. If there is a tent in the way I will set fire to it.

    Betlarge,

    I believe that’s a reference to all purveyors of dairy produce.

    Well he’s not the messiah.  He’s just a very naughty boy.
